think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? that implicit in that is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. had wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and also, you know, you just marked 9/11. that wasn't seen. none o

of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
, was an apology according to mitt romney and put at the feet of the president of the united states by mitt romney says in part that the embassy in cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims as we ken dumb efforts to offend believers of all religions. today the anniversary of september 11th americans are honoring our patriots those that serve our nation is the fitting democracy. respect is a cornerstone of american democracy and reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. this was released by the embassy in cairo apparently without washington's approval six hours before the protests. not as an apology for the protests or explanation or response. you've been in embassies around the world, top levels of the state department in washington, first of all, do the press officers at embassies have the authority to release a statement like that if intelligence and other information indicates that they may be experiencing protests? >> they certainly do. we have one of the most
world leaders with new slams on israel, the united states and members of the u.n. security council. it was not entertaining. western nations, including the united states, hit iran with tough penalties on the banking system and oil industry amid concerns that they are trying to develop a nuclear bomb. the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu is calling for the united states to draw a line on the sand. iran continues to claim their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. today, the iran president mahmoud ahmadinejad, blasted the united states and others for supporting israel in the first place. israel is what he call add "fake regime." >> we have business that some members of the security council have chosen silence with regard to the nuclear warheads on the fake regime while, at the same time, they impede scientific progress of other nations. >>shepard: president ahmadinejad denied accusations his government is propping up the regime in syria, a regime that is killing its own people. he touched on the deadly american backlash over the amateur video that mocked mohammed saying
. what has the attention of analysts that the egyptian prime minister morsi pushed the united states for the release of the blibd sheikh, releasing demonstrations at the same site of the u.s. embassy. they tell fox that the egyptian group takes its name from the omar al rack man from the blind sheikh. >> inspired by the first world trade center bombings some it is a group that has been around a long time. it has some staying power clearly since the early '90s and it is a group we have looked at in the past, we have tracked in the past and we'll continue to ask questions in relation to this particular event to see if there is any connection. >> reporter: there the question is whether there is some degree of coordination or whether the demonstration we're seeing like those in yemen this morning are spontaneous. one group of demonstrators feeding off another. the second question is whether the governments that are relatively weak will have the ability to offer the security the united states needs for its embassies in those countries. congressman rogers told fox a pressing question is wh

"newsroom" begins right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with muslim outrage and new flare-ups of anti-american violence. one flash point, kabul, afghanistan. crowds of protesters turn on police when they try to block their march toward the u.s. embassy. at least 15 officers are hurt and their vehicles set on fire. in ind

of countries is holding the iranian government accountable. the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president's speeches at the u.n. and the clinton global initiative put him on the stage. jessica, there was tough talk on iran. the president seemed to counter some of the remarks made by president ahmadinejad, who, for all intents and purposes, could be the last time he's in the united states as a member of the general alembssembassembly. what was the line the president took on iran? >> he took a tough line. this is an existential fight on israel. he said time is not unlimited for the world to stop iran from pursuing nuclear ambitions. weapons ambitions. he said that the u.s. will do what it must to stop it. another way of saying, indirectly, that all options are on the table. he's effectively taking the sam stance he gave earlier this year. but, he didn't go -- didn't go further and draw any red lines or new lines which is what the romney campaign was calling on him to do. it would be astonishing if he would do that at this stage, only fo
be clear. we cannot solve every problem in the world, the united states has not and will not seek to dictate the outcome of democrat transitions abroad. we do not expect other nations to agree with us on every issue. >>reporter: the president has not classified the attack as a terror attack but says this is an attack not on just america but on the entire mandate and values of the u.n. >>shepard: you mentioned that governor romney is in new york city and he and his are saying the president is failing to lead. >>reporter: they are hitting the president for the fact he was taping an episode of "the view" running today and did not meet with binyamin netanyahu. they feel he should show more leadership on the world stage. here is the laying out of the case. ought president has demonstrated there really isn't a central rudder to our foreign policy coming out of the white house. most americans are looking at it wanting to see pore -- more leadership. >>reporter: the president is not letting those attacks get to him. on way out of the u.n. he recognized a security guard from a previous vis
and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >>shepard: the president has been under fire for not meeting with binyamin netanyahu or any world leaders. despite multiple requests from netanyahu, the president did not set a red line on iran's nuclear activities. that takes us to our chief white house corporate following the president on the campaign trail. the president says the united states will always stand up for freedom. there are limits to america's influence. >>reporter: it is rare to have the two major candidates in the same city, a mile and a half apart. the president is at the u.n. mitt romney was at the clinton global initiative. the to candidates are offering such two sharply different visions about what to do with the mill east. mitt romney charging the president is sitting on the side lines and letting events dictate the situation. the president said the opposite. >> let me be clear. we cannot solve every problem in the world, the united states has not and will not seek to dictate the outc
of his top commanders threatens attacks on the united states and its interests if the country gets drawn into a war with israel. bill: watch the story this week as david lee miller starts the coverage at u.n. what do we know about the threats out of iran that we're hearing, david lee? >> reporter: bill this threat was made over the weekend the same time the iranian president was meeting it with the secretary-general of the united nations. came from the top commander in the iranian revolutionary guard. he said u.s. interests in the middle east would be attacked if there is war between iran and israel. just a the show time ago the iranian president said they do not take threats from israel seriously or as he termed the zionists. we have all means at our disposal. in a short time he will speak at a conference here in the united nations on the rule of law. the secretary-general over the weekendened when they arememberting to shy away rhetoric. we'll see if he follows up on that. representing the u.s. interests, attorney general eric holder. bill: we'll listen carefully here. syria is on the
the united states. ever. it is likely the iranian's president final speech to the u.n. attacking the united states and railed on israel calling its people "uncivilized." this is the holiest jewish holiday of the year. both presidential nominees crossing paths in ohio today. voters in ohio cast ballots in days. we will look at the poll that shows a candidate leading well outside the margin of error. the rising cost to stay in touch. smartphones can be expensive. we know that. just wait until you hear how much they are cutting into a lot of family budgets. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, the iranian president, ahmadinejad, today delivered what could be the last antiisraeli american and antiisraeli ranting in front of the u.n. the american delegation did not walk out. the american delegation never even showed up. they were out before he took the podium. the president, ahmadinejad, has less than a year left in the second and final term. the united states and israel have accuseddive ran of working toward a nu
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q
is that the makers of this anti-islam film in the united states be punished, or the u.s. government take some retaliatory action. we've heard from the organizer of this march here in egypt for him to be tried with sharia law meaning he could be executed for insulting the prophet muhammad. it is very difficult in this part of the world where putting anything on the internet is so controlled, speech is so controlled, you can be imprisoned for insutting us -- insulting islam. very difficult to explain in the united states we live in a democracy, and the government can't just go around punishing people no matter how horrible what they say is on the internet. megyn? megyn: leland vittert, thank you. >>> there are new questions today about the protests against america and the billions in foreign aid we send to countries like pakistan, libya and egypt. pakistan, where the u.s. embassy is under siege right now, got $2.1 billion from american taxpayers this year. libya, where four americans were murdered at the consulate in benghazi last week gets a little over $13 million in financial assistance, and
across the muslim world and delivering a stern warning to iran saying the united states will do what it must do to prevent tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we're going to have reaction to the president's u.n. address coming up in just a moment. first though, brand new stories and breaking news. >> the deadly west nile virus outbreak across our country is now getting worse. with one state hit very hard, the new efforts to stop the virus right in its tracks. >>> wild weather killer floods and mudslides are forcing more than a million folks out of their homes. we're live with that story. >>> plus a new first for the mars rover as its robotic arm reaches out to touch a huge rock on the planet. now the rover on the move again. where it is headed next and why the trip is making history. it is all "happening now.". jamie: first back to our top story, violence in the middle east is centering in the gathering of the united nations general assembly. i'm jamie colby in for jenna lee. jon: the president warning iran that the u.s. will quote, do what we must to prevent the rogue nation fro
the region the united states shut many diplomatic facilities because friday prayers often fueled mob rage. some of the ugliest violence, thou though, is in pakistan. in peshawar, protesters set fire to two movie theaters. joining us live from islamabad with more, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. a national holiday, a day to show your love for the approvest muhammad. it turned out to be a day where many pakistanis showed their anger against america, demonstrations in every major city in pakistan and sometimes it got very violent. one news van driver in the city of peshawar shot and killed. here in the capital of islamabad, protests are dying down. here is what it looked like earlier today. friday prayers have just concluded. what we're seeing are some of the largest and most intense protests yet here in pakistan. now what you see over there are shipping containers. police are using them to block off the path to the diplomatic enclave. that's where the foreign embassies are, u.s. embassy, french embassy. now what you seem to have here is some people urging protesters to rush
dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d

got worse for the united states overseas today as anti-u.s. protests over the film that denigrates the prophet, muhammed, spread to nearly 20 countries now. the violence has erupted in what is the cradle of spring, and in benghazi, the attack that killed four americans, including the first ambassador to die in decades. this was a somber day at andrew's air force base as the four americans came home, as the leaders of their government looked on. it is where we begin our coverage tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. >> reporter: to the mournful tones of "nearer my god to thee," the caskets came home, four public servants, arriving to the embrace of family and the secretary of state, brought together in grief. >> today, we bring home four americans who gave their lives for our country, and our values. >> reporter: four americans, the president said, who knew the danger and accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. >> glenn dougherty never shied from adventure, he believed in his life he could make a difference, by the calling as a navy seal. tyrone wood
and final term. the united states and israel have accuseddive ran of working toward a nuclear bomb. inspectors have questioned claims that the enrichment activists are for peaceful purposes. ahmadinejad said the israelis were uncivilized zionists. >> the pledge to disclose armaments in due time is being used as a threat against nations to get them to accept a new era of continued threats while the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear average of this reality. >>shepard: as i reported the american delegation boycotted the speech along with the israeli delegates which decided not to hear the iranian president on john yom kippur, te most holy day of the jewish calendar. >> he again used the trip to the united nations not to address the legitimate aspirations of the iranian people, but, instead, spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against israelis according to the mission to the u.n., the special spokesman. more subdued this year than last year. >>jonathan: given this is his last speech as president of iran and the rhetoric we hav
